This 10-inch contractor table saw is up to the job whether you’re cutting wood or metal. The 15-amp enclosed induction motor is powerful enough to shred thick stock or tricky dadoes, and the cast-iron tabletop gives a stable and spacious surface. The steel rails with a spreader, in combination with the T-locking Square’s rip fence, can handle the broadest stock. A wet/dry vacuum can be connected to the 2.5-in dust port, which has an integrated dust collection system, to keep sawdust to a minimum. Locking bevel and height adjustment wheels, as well as 3/4-inch wide miter gauge Tholes that allow attachments like feather boards, ensuring precision. It’s simple to move the saw about the workplace thanks to its tubular rolling stand.

The Delta 36-725T2 has the following features:

  • The blade is 10 inches long, and the locking rip fence is 12 inches long.
  • A 15 amp motor spins at 3600 RPM, capable of cutting through heavy stock or difficult dadoes.
  • A 10-inch carbide-tipped blade with an arbor lock assures long-term durability while also making blade replacement simple.
  • A 30-inch right-to-left rip capacity and a 15-inch left-to-right rip capacity accommodate a variety of sizes.
  • Precision cuts are achievable with the locking T-Square rip fence with 3-point locking rip fence, and steel rails with spreader allow the widest stock possible.
  • Simple to assemble tubular stand with casters.
  • Warranty duration of 5 years
  • A huge cast-iron surface with dimensions of 27.13 inches long by 20.24 inches broad provides enough of the workspace.
  • The locking bevel and height adjustment wheels ensure consistency when making repetitive cuts.

The Delta 36-725T2 has the following features:

  • A 15-amp power supply is required.
  • A 120-volt power supply is required.
  • Arbor Dimensions: 5/8″”
  • The blade’s diameter is 10 mm.”
  • 3,600 revolutions per minute
  • 30-pound maximum right rip load.”
  • 30″ Right Rip Capacity
  • 2-1/2″ cut depth at 45 degrees
  • three-and-a-half-inch
  • 18-1/2″ from the front of the table to the center of the blade
  • It is 27 feet in length.”
  • 31″ from the floor to the tabletop
  • 3-1/2″ depth of cut
  • The highest weight that can be comfortably carried is 220 pounds.

Locking bevel wheels makes repetitive cutting easier

For most woodworking projects, an advanced cabinet-style table saw with a 3-hp or higher motor isn’t required (or budget). We all need a machine with enough moxie to rip thick hardwoods without pausing or wobbling and cut sheet products with precision. All of the saws in this comparison feature 112 hp or higher motors, heavy-duty tables and built-in stands, and strong rip fences, allowing them to meet these standards. This does not, however, imply that they are on an equal basis. Our testing reveals inconsistencies that aren’t included in their internet specs.

How did we decide on this specific location?

  • Each table saw that was considered for our research has to match the following criteria:
  • It can be used alone or in a cabinet.
  • Pre-wired for use at 110 volts (some models can be rewired for 220-volt service)
  • Cast-iron dining table (cast-iron extensions are a bonus)
  • There are as many as 36 “of ripping power.
  • The worth of a table saw can be determined by six characteristics.

Lowering one’s power In our tests, each saw was able to rip 134 “thick red oak” with the new blade without the machine running out of power or shutting down. Stock can be cut faster than on a tabletop or job-site saw, but it must be fed more slowly. You can rely on this rip barrier. As they move over their rails, the best fences are smooth and secure. One-third of the saws have a T-square-style fence, which flexes somewhat when sideways force is applied during a rip cut and only locks at the operator end. However, none of these barriers deflected more than.011″ in our tests, a small enough amount that the end product in wood is virtually imperceptible.

Easy-to-operate blade guard

An easy-to-operate blade guard. Blade guards on modern table saws are significantly easier to remove and replace than those on your father’s table saw, which had to be discarded because they were too difficult to use. In some variations, the riving knife can be replaced with a splitter for non-thru cuts or thin rips. Splitters and riving knives on the tested saws work well with full-kerf (18 in.) blades.” The workpiece may become stuck if a thin-kerf blade is used with a thick-kerf blade. Powermatic sells a thin-kerf riving knife that can be purchased separately.

Fine particle collection is effective. On all saws, a dust cowl covers the lower half of the blade, keeping debris from escaping (when attached to a vacuum or dust collector). Furthermore, dust ports integrated into the enclosed cabinets of the vast majority of the saws tested help to remove blade shroud-generated dust. The dust apertures on the blade guards of Harvey and Laguna saws, on the other hand, effectively remove dust from above the blade. Throat implants can be used in a variety of situations. Only the Grizzly, Harvey, and Shop Fox saws come with a wide-opening insert that closes the gap around the blade when used with a dado set.

They have a 3/16-inch thickness and a lever lock, which we appreciate in SawStop plates (shown below) “Because the blade hole is so large, this is really a zero-clearance plate.” For most saws, dado and zero-clearance plates are commonly offered as optional extras. It’s the “18” model. When the Grizzly, Harvey, Rikon, and Shop Fox saws arrived, the massive steel plates were not flat. All could be flattened except Harvey, which had stamped reinforcing ribs that prevented it.

SawStop’s safety technology keeps your hands safe

All SawStop table saws have a proprietary flesh-detection system that protects the operator from serious damage. It works like this: When something like a finger (or any other metal or wet pressure-treated lumber) comes into contact with the blade, the mechanism sends a low-voltage electrical current through it, causing an aluminum brake pawl to be pushed into the blade, instantly slowing it down and safely lowering it below the table.

The barriers on the other four saws have no potential for deflection (Delta 36-725T2; Ridgid R4512; Rikon 10-205; and SawStop CNS175-SFA30). We found the Ridgid and Rikon rip-fences’ scales to be more difficult to read than the other rip-fences’ scales. Make use of a decent miter gauge. A simple miter gauge is provided by a handful of these saws, with only 90° and 45° stop angles (although not all are adjustable). The Delta, Grizzly G0771Z, and Shop Fox W1837 all have nine individually adjustable stops, giving them a leg up on the competition. The flip-stop fence on the Powermatic PM1000’s miter gauge, on the other hand, was too unsteady for us to trust the precision of the 90° and 45° stops.

These table saws have been thoroughly tested and proven to be dependable

The SawStop PCS175-TGP236 table saw emerged as the obvious winner after extensive testing. This saw excelled in every category, and its flesh-detecting safety function puts it at the top of the field. It’s the most effective instrument we’ve ever encountered. In our opinion, the Delta 36-725T2 is also a Top Value. It’s a good table saw, and at $600, it’s the cheapest in the test, making it a good entry-level choice.
